Ironically, the image is (wrongly) reversed after the opening titles
This is a very entertaining film, but I was confused while watching it, because after the initial titles (i.e. starting at 01:07), the image is (incorrectly) horizontally reversed. At 01:16, the text on the blackboard should not be reversed, since no one is using the optical devices yet. 01:35 - "I see you on my right", though in the reversed frame he's looking left. For the shot starting at 03:17, the narration says the text on the book is reversed by the mirror prism the professor is using, yet it's shown unmirrored (or in fact, double-reversed). And so on throughout the rest of the film.
A/V Geeks, can you correct this and reupload? I would be happy to do it myself in Vegas and upload it for you, but you probably have a higher quality master than the 248.5M .m4v version downloadable from the site.
Thanks for making this oddity available!

Might explain some drivers out there
Great surreal film featuring a wacko scientist leading experiments featuring volunteers who get to wear head gear that force their left right perspective to be reversed, and in another experiment ther up down factor is reversed. These experiments are fun, and the images in the film are amazing. Very bizarre! This film is highly recommended by me!
